Roger Groene, age 92, of Cincinnati, Ohio passed away on Saturday, January 21, 2023. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 11, 1930 to Arthur and Margaret Groene (nee Ebner ).

He was preceded in death by his parents, and his wife, Vivian M. Groene (nee Hoctor).

Roger is survived by his children, Diane (Tom) Allgeyer and Tom (Barb) Groene, his grandchildren, Todd (Cathy) Allgeyer, Jamie (Rob) Rosebenblatt, Christy (Scott) Burbrink, Jenna (Dan) Schira, Michael (Bailey) Allgeyer, Keith (Liz) Groene, Staci (David) Cobb, Nicholas (Morgan) Allgeyer, Ben (Katie) Rader, and his great grandchildren, Riley, Carter, Brady, Sophia, Ella, Clara, Gabriel, Gus, Nora, Garrison, Simon, Charlotte, Asher, Bellamy,Gibson, Amelia, Everett and two on the way.

Roger is the brother of Ted (Martha) Groene.

Roger loved his family almost as much as life itself. His wife of 64 years was “his best girl”. After she suffered a stroke in 2011, he dedicated his life to caring for her for the next seven years. His 2 children, grandchildren, all 9 of them, and all 17 of his great grandchildren (with 2 on the way), were the apple of his eye. Vacationing, spending time at their school and sporting events were some of Roger and Vivian’s most cherished memories. Christmas celebrations were epic, sometimes requiring a second Christmas celebration in July.

Roger enjoyed traveling with Vivian, visiting Europe three times, Alaska, Hawaii, Panama Canal, cruises, as well as multi trips to beach locations. He enjoyed golfing, belonging to a couple of golf leagues. He was a member of AXE enjoying time with friends and former classmates. Roger also enjoyed helping his kids and grandkids with home improvement projects.

Visitation is in the Greeting Room of St Antoninus Church, Monday, January 30, 2023 from 9:30 AM until the funeral mass at 10:30 AM. Burial, with Military Honors will follow in New St Joseph Cemetery.

In loving memory of Roger, contributions may be made to Elder High School.
